Hotel Kieler Yacht Club
This hotel has a history closely associated with the sport of sailing, once the Imperial Yacht Club (1887) was founded here. In the latter part of the 1880s it was handed over from the German Navy to the Kiel Yacht Club who rebuilt it in 1926 after the building was completely destroyed in the First World War. Today when you visit you'll be stepping on the same ground as the Spanish King Juan Carlos; Greece’s former King Constantine and King Carl Gustav of Sweden who stayed at the Hotel Kieler Yacht Club when they came to watch the Olympic Games in 1972. You couldn't be staying in a more nautical place within Hotel Kieler Yacht Club's 21 rooms and suites. Book here.
